The new CEO Richard Lindsay said: “I’m very happy to be leading this team and building upon the Smuttynose brand’s legacyOur immediate priorities are focused on growth”. Among his plans are the hiring of additional sales staff as well as investment in a canning line that will “allow us to participate in a growing segment of the craft beer market”. Smuttynose was founded in 1994 and currently employs 66 peopleProblems at the brewery began when it invested in a new production facility in 2014 which is capable of producing 75,000 barrels per year. The sale includes the Smuttynose brand, its production facility in Towle Farm, Hayseed Restaurant and 13-acre estate. Peter Egelston, president and co-founder of Smuttynose, said: “All of us here are Smuttynose are eager to turn the page and start our next chapterWe are pleased to know that we’ll be working with investors from within our own community, people who are familiar with our brand and appreciate what we’ve built here.” Co-founder Joanne Francis, added: “A company like Smuttynose doesn’t just pop up overnightOur culture and reputation for quality are the result of decades of work, devotion and creativityWe’ve built a strong foundation with a lot of untapped potential, but circumstances over the last couple of years have held us backWith a strong partner who understands that potential, there’s no limit to what we can now accomplish”. It was previously reported by Brewbound that a local tech entrepreneur, Norman Rice, had reached an agreement with The Provident Bank to purchase the brewery, however his bid was ultimately rejected. Runnymede Investments is a family owned investment firm, based five miles away from the brewery, which specialises in real estate, private equity, and venture capital.
